The people of Syria pay tribute to James Foley

Every week residents in the town of Kafranbel in Idlib, north west Syria, release a photo or sign related to current events in an attempt to draw the world's attention to the ongoing civil war in their country.

Last week they honoured Robin Williams. This week the news was a little closer to home with residents paying tribute to American journalist James Foley, who is thought to have been murdered by Islamic State (Isis) militants.

Mr Foley, 40, went missing while reporting in Syria two years ago and a video purporting to be of his beheading was released by Isis last night.
